My paper on Tantric meditation is also going nowhere. The books might have well been written in Sanskrit. Yes, in true Catholic fashion, wrapping my head around the concept of meditation and clearing one's mind of thoughts is just too difficult. I don't know how Siddhartha Gautama Buddha did it. The mind boggles.
In other news, my sister and brother-in-law have flown in from the Arab Emirates for a holiday, and we went out and had dinner last night. I'm still feeling the after effects. We went to a restaurant at Eagle St. Pier and I had veal tenderloin with pasta followed by creme brulee. Truly over-indulgent of me, but satisfying all the same.
My niece's christening is on Sunday, and I'm the godmother. Feel ridiculous pride over that. Should be a good day. Just a small gathering this time, unlike my nephew's christening a few years ago. :p
I haven't felt like updating all week.....assignments do that to me, strangely enough. It's annoying, but I really don't have a life at the moment. It all revolves around getting my assignments done, and I've felt rather annoyed with myself as of late for procrastinating. Can't wait until the mid-semester break. I need it. Need a little bit of relaxation.....even though I've just realized there's another essay coming up. >.< It never ends!
